>Kevin P. Edgecomb at Biblicalia has posted his selection of the January posts for the Biblical Studies Carnival XXVI. Kevin has done an excellent job in preparing the Carnival.
I would like to emphasize three of the many issues and topics included in Kevin’s selection:
1. A lengthy presentation of a seminar discussing the Talpiot tomb, which some scholars have identified as the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth and his family.
2. The reading of a newly discovered seal excavated by Eilat Mazar and how she changed her views on the meaning of the seal.
3. The ongoing discussion among bibliobloggers of the maximalists versus minimalists controversy.
I hope you will visit Kevin’s blog and read the Biblical Studies Carnival XXVI.
